The Voice Battle Rounds have begun. Blind Auditions were so last week.
While always awesome, the Battle Rounds' flaw in past seasons was that after a truly epic duet, one of the two participants would be sent home immediately.
This season, the judges are allowed to "steal" two battle losers from the other teams, keeping them alive. We love it. On to the head-to-head action from Monday!
Amanda Brown vs. Trevin Hunte - "Vision of Love" (Team Cee Lo)
Casey Muessigmann vs. Terry McDermott - "Carry On Wayward Son" (Team Blake)
Bryan Keith vs. Collin McLoughlin - "Santeria" (Team Adam)
Diego Val vs. JR Aquino - "Jessie's Girl" (Team Cee Lo)
De'Borah vs. Nelly's Echo - "Message in a Bottle" (Team Christina)
2Steel Girls vs. Gracia Harrison - "Sin Wagon" (Team Blake)
What did you all think of the first episode of the Battle Rounds? Which was your favorite battle? Do you like the new "steal" component to keep more stars alive?
